Stymied at being able to replicate my mom's cornbread stuffing, we have developed this recipe - enough to stuff a big bird & have an additional dish to bake outside the bird. We make such a big batch because the dressing is DECIMATED fast& we get so many requests for the recipe from guys & gals!! This is sagey - if you are not a sage lover, reduce it to 1 tsp. The currants do not make it sweet but add a lovely nuance as do the pecans, water chestnuts & cranberries. Can be made vegan with omission of eggs, butter & vegetable broth used instead of chicken broth - turns out almost as well. Mix in a BIG mixing container to keep the stuffing light & fluffy with addition of liquids. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do! Note - I do all the chopping a night or two BEFORE Thanksgiving & store in Ziploc in the fridge to speed this up on Thanksgiving am. Then I can wake up more before I start welding a knife! LOL! *****program inserts "prepared" before stuffing but I mean 16 ounces dry weight, eg. 1 package, dry.
